medicine. that's the triple c as it's known on the street. according to principal glen webb the girls took up to 12 one-a-day tablets each and were noticeably affected. too much of the over-the-counter pills can cause hallucination and intoxication. kids think the meds are safe but in excess dosages they are not. there is a risk of organ damage. triple c is a new trend across the country not just in morgan hill e not just in california. kids are learning about it through social media. the problem is so concerning the food and drug administration is considering putting certain cold meds back on its controlled list. meanwhile, the girls are going to be okay, but could face disciplinary action. hopefully they learn their lesson. live in morgan hill, nannette miranda for "today in the bay." >> maybe the parents keep a closer eye on the medicine cabin cabinets. thank you very much. keep your eyes peeled on the roadway this morning at 6:0.

hundreds of feet so please, take it easy if you're headed that way. also expected flight delays out of sfo as the fog is settling in. temperatures mostly in the 40s. we'll see a nice, comfortable finish to the day. the sun will break through the stack of clouds. by around 11:00 a.m. inland valleys, fog clearing pattern in san francisco and at the immediate coast up and down the peninsula. for you that might mean delight delays we're expecting won't last that long. we'll keep you updated here on nbc bay area. couple incidents a new one blue lifr more. you want to give yourself extra time at this point. 580 a crash blocking the left-hand lane westbound this morning. in san jose maybe you're just getting ready to hit the i would way with the fog and a couple earlier accidents, northbound 101 is moving slow. you'll have a better drive on 87. i keep showing you this shot, 101 at 280 through san jose, we

here are today's top stories, the race to fill barbara boxer's seat appears to be taking shape. kamala harris expected to announce she'll run for boxer's seat in 2016. harris served as san francisco's district attorney prior to becoming the state's top cop. three students in morgan hill were hospitalized after what administrators say was a dangerous medicine cocktail. the students took something called triple c which is getting big internet buzz that amounted to 12 one-a-day cold tablets. the girls will be okay but the schools are putting out a warning to parents. the celebrations got out of hand in columbus, ohio. ohio students celebrating their team's playoff win. some of them got a little too rowdy. coaches burned, students tore down a goal post at the football stadium. police used tear gas and there were a number of arrests as
well. >> french authorities are combing the streets looking for any members of what they call a terrorist cell involved in the tedly attack on satirial news magazine "charlie hebdo." the funerals are under way for victims killed connected to the attack at the kosher market in paris. >> "today in the bay's" kris sanchez joins us now. we're learning of an arrest in bulgaria. >> yes, bulgarian authorities say they have a french citizen in custody believed to have links to one of the brothers involved in that "charlie hebdo" magazine massacre. the associated press is reporting this morning that the man in custody had two outstanding warrants, including one related to a terror connection. i'm working to get more information on this. i'll try to have it for you in the next half hour. in the meantime the search continues for the woman in this picture, the one in the veil there. authorities say hayat boumeddiene is the wife of the man who attacked that paris kosher market. she reportedly got out of paris
before amedy cue bali killed people there. she is in syria in a town under isis control and virtually out of law enforcement's reach. in france the prime minister deployed 10,000 proopz and police, the most ever since war time. nearly half of them are charged with protecting jewish schools and synagogues. the u.s. security high at the jewish museum in new york along with other federal buildings around the nation. the concern is related to threats against soldiers made by cyber hackers who took over the pentagon's twitter and youtube accounts also posting isis pr propaganda videos. the four victims in the kosher market attacks are being laid to rest in israel. all four were french jews, that's why they're being buried there. the police officers also killed, their funerals are in paris. another funeral, this one is in
pakistani for the kouachi brothers who are being hailed as heroes of islam. the remaining staff of "charlie hebdo" magazine is working on their next edition, going to come out tomorrow, said to have a picture of muhammad on the cover. i'll tell what you else is says, coming up in the next half hour. melissa? >> thank you very much, kris. as groups like isis draw from social media, david cameron, the prime minister of england is warning his country may ban some apps in order to fight terrorism. >> scott mcdrew continues. >> he's deeply concerned about apple's i-chat and what's app, apps encrypted in the end, the companies that make the app can't read what you wrote. cameron speaking to the newspaper "the independent" do we want to allow a means of communication between people with which we cannot read? cameron likely does not have the vote to push it through
parliament, at least not before the next election. the reasons companies like apple created end to end encryption was to get them off the hook with the domestic spying program. the government can't read american's texts without a warrant, which several sources have pointed out the gft often tries to do. as kris mentioned, washington is trying to figure out who hacked the twitter and youtube accounts belonging to the military's central command. this is what the twitter page looked like for a while on monday morning. it's very important to realize central command itself was not hacked. the twitter account was. there is a huge difference there, someone hacks a bank that's a problem. someone hacks the bank's twitter accounts, that's just embarrassing. whoever did it also published some secret data but if you google the secret data you find it on the internet, for instance on the west what purports to be a secret military map of north korean nuclear facilities own on the map a powerpoint published
by mit. sam and laura, i am not jack ryan. i think those are the same maps. but i'll leave it up to you. >> is that a "clear and present danger" reference? >> indeed it is. >> just checking. thank you very much, scott. san francisco's koi tower will are closed as crews finish filming a commercial featuring a drone. it shut down the tourist attraction because the faa requires people to be at least 200 feet away. the tower is going to reopen tomorrow. >> a lot of tourists like to head up there. a lot of folks heading into san francisco this morning, this is a look at the toll plaza. me metering lights no doubt on this morning. >> ugh. not always fun to begin with and now you throw in another element to the equation. >> i think a lot of ladies like comfort and uggs provide just that. i'm getting a nod from our floor
director. this morning it doesn't matter where you're headed. this fog is starting to create delays. as we get into this afternoon it will be clear. sunshine, we're not sparing the air. oakland on the east shore through 880, which typically stacks up at this time of the morning, you've got 0.13 miles of visibility. you have 5,280 feet you can only see 00 feet. in the south bay treacherous as well. san jose a quarter-mile visibility and headed throughout the day we'll start out in the 40s and 50s and going to end up comfortable a 64-degree day in the south bay. 65 for the east bay. trivalley 70 degrees for you and the north bay 70 degrees, so much warmer than average, because of this big ridge of high pressure, the same ridge
that's forcing all that moisture right to the surface, as it gains some energy for today. you see that in the form of fog. here's the deal. tomorrow, likely dealing with fog, not quite as thick. we'll start to lose that fog thursday into friday, with some good atmospheric mixing, and really for fog to form, you need two things, clear skies and calm winds. once we pick up the windr>m= geg into late week we'll lose that fog. then i've been waiting to show you this, saturday at 11:00 p.m. starting to get rain showers in the north bay. we continue that futurecast sunday at 10:00 a.m., a little bit of shower activity lingering at that point. the weekend will not be a washout. you will have ample opportunities to get outdoors and stay dry but by the beginning of next week it does look like the storm track will return. we need that rain. we'll keep you updated, i'm very interested in the upcoming days. let's get to your drive. mike has the day off. couple things slowing you down. this is a really bad spot for a crash, westbound 580 at
livermore avenue. you can see the delays here, spend about 15 minutes longer than usual to get through the crash. crash blocking the left-hand lane. the chp is on the scene and trying to get that cleared but this is going to slow you down, not a great alternate. bay bridge toll plaza, metering lights are on. you can see how thick the fog is. travel cautiously. the clouds are starting to move up along the bay bridge, expecting to lose visibility here within the next 15 minutes. we'll show it to you live if you don't have anywhere to go, wo h otherwise we'll keep up updated. hundreds of people gathered in san francisco for a vigil and moompb to rememb march to remember the lives of four young men. >> all lives matter. >> the four men ages 19 to 22 were shot and killed friday night. police are calling it a gang related shooting.
the men were sitting in a stolen car. the families say they weren't gang members and they're pleading for someone to turn the shooters in. protests planned outside the city hall in response to the approval of an armored police truck. protest is being planned by theory source center for nonviolence. the city accepted a grant from homeland security department last month to pay for this armored vehicle. critics say it's the same kind of vehicle used against protesters in ferguson, missouri, after the police shooting death of michael brown. they say the truck looks like a tank, but the city told santa cruz reporters it was made specifically for law enforcement. up next, flames break out feet away from one of the busiest transit hubs in the country. how it's impacting travel and why firefighters say it is suspicious. and travel right now this morning looking okay in the south bay. this is a live look from downtown san jose, as the sun gets ready to come up.
and a very good tuesday morning to you. can you help me out? fog has inundated and traveling in as well. as you travel this morning, take extra time, extra precautions. we want to you be safe on the roads. 6:24 right now. investigators have the tools they say they need to hopefully pinpoint what caused air asia
flight 8501 to crash into the java sea. yesterday divers pulled the plane's second black box the cockpit voice recorder from the water. it has been trapped beneath the wreckage. and analysts will townload the data. the device records in two-hour loops so experts should be able to hear everything the pilots said to each other during the flight. the plane was only in the air 42 minutes before it crashed on december 28th. 162 people were on board. only 48 bodies have been recovered. we have new video of what investigators are calling a suspicious fire at new york's penn station. more than 100 firefighters battled that fire that took over two levels at a construction site at the station earlier this morning. trains coming in and out of the station were delayed and reopened hours later. two firefighters were hurt. the fire caused considerable structural damage to the iconic station. is there a doctor in the
house? >> those were. the terrifying moemts during a subway train accident in washington, d.c. smoke from abelectrical fire in the tunnel filled a train headed to virginia yesterday. one woman died. two people are in critical condition. >> there was a gentleman who went into seizures. there were two unconscious people that i saw pulled off the train by good samaritans that were carrying them. lot of people couldn't stop coughing. >> the train line will remain closed today. the time right now is 6:26. the markets still trying to find their way in 2015, and looking to right the ship after stocks fall for a second straight day. we'll take a closer look at the early numbers with scott mcgrew and we'll take you live to yosemite national park for two men trying to complete what's being called the hardest rock
reaching for history, two climbers scaling the sheer face of el captain are inching closer toward the summit. live report from yosemite in just moments. thick fog forcing delays for commuters all across the bay area. we'll give you the latest here later today, better air quality. we've got a big pattern change ahead but not until we see

from halhalie jackson. >> reporter: kevin jorgen is enfrom santa rosa overnight made a lot of progress and caught up with his climbing partner and friend tommy caldwell. they're morning half way up the wall and while the rest of it is not easy by any stretch of the magazine it's a little less technical. there's a sense of optimism and hope the guys will hit the summit of el captain. they are free climbing. for safety to catch them if they were to fall. as you imagine that's happened quite a few time after the last 15 days. it's interesting because you talk about your heart fluttering when you watch this. for all of us non-climbers you think how could they do it? for these guys it's not a sense of thrill or risk, it's work. they planned this meticulously,
year over year after year attempted it. this is about focus, it's about determination, it's about perseverance, not necessarily about thrill seeking at all. one of the climbers kevin tweeted out a bit ago, this isn't about conquering the cap, this is about realizing a dream. people from all over the country and world are here in yosemite, many stopping to watch the realization of a dream from me see guys. it's amazing. you can't help but root for these two. much more on the "today" show in a bit. >> did you talk to them before and did they express any nervousness? >> reporter: they're tweeting and instagraming and facebooking from the side of the wall. we are getting incredible insight day after day. you know how bad cell reception is in the yosemite. the wall has amazing signals so they're able to get signals out. kevin was struggling with this one part of the climb for about
a week. the momentum shifted in his favor. it's intangible. when you get that momentum it helps propel you to the top. >> multitaskers as well, being able to pull that off. thank you so much, hallie. we're following the climbers progress very closely this morning. hallie will have more on the historic attempt coming up on "today." >> really great insight there, the dome is wired. how about that? time to check your forecast right now, we'll give you a live look outside a city that is most certainly very internet-savvy and super wired, south bay on this morning. 6:33. we have been dealing with fog on and off. let's check in with christina. >> good morning, some parts of the bay area the fog is kind of drifting around, so even if you leave your house and it's nice and clear, there's still some really thick pockets out there. now that the sun is up, fog clears from the top down. you need the sun to warm up that top layer and that's what's
starting to happen. here is your temperatures right now, comfortable conditions, not too bad. i'm happy to report it is not a spare the air day, after hitting 11 consecutive, but we told you that fog was going to start to swallow up the bay bridge. we're actually seeing that in real time right now. so please take it easy. like we said before, this fog is not stationary by any means, and we're already seeing some pretty hefty delays, just caused by that reduced visibility. temperatures today are going to be very choice for outdoor activities, if that's something you're into and the air quality kept you inside, look at this, 70 degrees today in the north bay, that's a lovely day, same for the trivalleys. mid-60s for the rest of the bay area, not a lot of microclimate separation. here's the deal for this week, temperatures stay steady, we'll see more wind thursday into friday. by saturday the rain moves in, i'll give you timing for the showers in my next report. mike has the day off, pulling double duty and traffic is stacking up in the usual hot
spots with a couple incidents continuing to cause slowing through livermore. westbound 580 the alivermore avenue the crash has been moved to the side of the road. it will take an additional ten to 15 minutes to clear the incident. alternate take greenville road to la placitas. the bay bridge toll plaza socked in with fog and it is a slow drive across that span right now. same for the san mateo bridge. give yourself extra time and please travel cautiously. we'll keep you updated. back to you, sam and laura. >> thanks, christina. the markets have been open for just a couple minutes, looking to recover somewhat. we'll check the numbers with scott mcgrew. >> we've talked so many times about oil prices fall so the market falls. falling, falling. oil prices have fallen again but look at the big board. the dow industrials are up 239 big points, or 1.3%! 17,880, so the rule here has been broken today.
facebook announced it's going to add amber alerts to your facebook page. this is not entirely new. you were able to "like" amber alerts for your state before, those would show up. now facebook says it's going to send out those alerts even without the like and they'll be more regional as well. unlike the alert on your iphone, it's not going to set off alarms or buzzers. it will just show up in your news feed but one more way to let people know when children need help. laura? >> important to get the word out quickly. thanks. 6:36. still ahead the head coach search heats up on both sides of the bay today. the top candidates meeting with the raiders and the 49ers coming up next. >> plenty at stake. plus celebration turning disruptive, as thousands of people take to the streets in columbus to celebrate a buckeyes championship. the controversial tactics police use to contain the crowds, next. keeping our eye out across the bay area this morning as the sun arrives.

second time today. the two sides first met earlier this month. gates is also in line for the denver top job. the broncos cut ties with john fox this weekend. >> the broncos defensive coordinator and bay area native jack del rio is expected to have a second interview today to become the new head coach of the silver and black. he first met with the owner mark davis january 3rd and expected to sit down with the general manager reggie mckenzie, also going to be today. >> it will be interesting to see where everyone settles. 6:41. coming up making a move, attorney general kamala harris set to announce her run for the u.s. senate sometime this morning. we'll have a look at her political career next. plus a disturbing and growing tend, kids overdosing on purpose. the common medicine they're using to get high, next.
happening today, big news, speculation crystallizing into reality. state attorney general and bay area native kamala harris is set to announce she will be running for u.s. senate in 2016, a seat that will soon be empty in a few years ben barbara boxer retires. >> "today in the bay" stephanie chuang joins us from san francisco this morning. stephanie, we're talking about someone who already made state history. >> that's right, good morning to you both, laura and sam. kamala harris we're in front of her state attorney general's office in san francisco. 50 years old, made history as the first woman, first
african-american and first south-asian-american to be elected to this office in california history. she was born in oakland, went to law school at uc hastings in berkeley, deep bay area roots and kicked off her career in the almeida county and san francisco district office. in 2003 and 2007 voters electriced her as district attorney. larry bersten says she has an uphill climb before she can pioneer the way for others who want to follow in her footsteps. >> particularly women and people of color who have yet to really achieve parity with white males. >> reporter: another name thrown around was gavin newsom. facebook he will not run, saying he wants to focus on california and speculation set on the race for governor when jerry brown's terms out in )qjs2018.
$50 million is the estimate from larry gersten on how much it will take a serious candidate to run and it could reduce the number of candidates for either party up to three to four and ultimately with other costs involved we're talking about the candidates collectively raising and spending close to $1 billion. as newsom did yesterday on facebook, we're expecting harris to make her formal announcement that she will run for boxer's seat sometime today on social media. live in san francisco, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." >> okay, numbers, campaign financing numbers almost unimaginable a few yeerkz. thank you. >> as steph mentioned harris is expected to make the announcement any minute now. as soon as it happens we'll let you know. any time we're not on the air get the latest information on our website, nbcbayarea.com. let's get informed politically, actually we're going to go meteorologically outside right now, and check that out. >> wow. >> most of the bridge is kind of
just completely covered up there in fog. beautiful. definitely getting swallowed by the fog. >> by the way politics, you don't want to talk about politics randomly with people but weather, oh, my, my, always a good go-to. this morning the talk of the town is going to be that thick fog and i have to tell you, we're going to get your traffic in just a moment. mike has the day off. we have a multivehicle crash on 101 through belmont. if you take 101, stick around, we'll get to the report in moments. 48 degrees to kick off the day in san francisco, 39 degrees in the north bay. the bay bridge starting to get swallowed by that fog, and that will continue to be the trend as we head throughout the next couple hours. the fog is not going to get better, only worse. let's talk about what's happening out there, temps in the mid-60s, just about all week long. we're not sparing the air today. much better air quality and that sun will come out between about 9:00 and 11:00 your inland valley spots, seeing earlier sunshine at the coast, we'll get a little bit more wind. the pattern changes entirely,
getting close to the weekend. i know it's only tuesday but you might be thinking about the weekend, that might be what helps you get through the long workdays. saturday at 11:00, we do have rain on the way but saturday looks good for your outdoor plans. we stop the clock getting into your sunday at 10:00 a.m., showers linger. we have a better chance for rain when we meet back here next week and everybody keeps asking me, when is the rain going to return? now you know, bring that up to the water cooler. talking about your drive, mike has the day off so a couple things to point out. we'll start on the east shore, a serious incident crash southbound 880, just after 92, as you know where the two highways come together it typically slows. this takes you about 10 to 15 minutes longer than usual. to the multivehicle crash southbound 101 through belmont. we have four cars involved and it's blocking the fast lane so this just happened and the delays are just starting to stack up 280. definitely a better way for to you go this morning. we'll keep you updated.
